Yaqi Katana: Single Edge Cobbled Slim (SCHaDE)
#1
Information 
This is the new Yaqi Katana.

I've seen at the Yaqi Shaving retailer in Australia.
It's the Slim version of the Single Edge Half DE blade (SHaDE) with the Cobbled geometry.
I really like the new head, as well the slender and classic handle.
It'll be available in four colors:
• White
• Space Chrome
• Black
• Black Metal
For me the chromed / silver one is a true beauty.
But I think It's not the kind of mild shaver I prefer.

Three good ideas, all in one:
- SHaDE
- Cobbled
- Colonial Razors V2 original handle

Not my cup of tea, I love mild shavers.
But lot's of people will find a great tool.
And colors are very nice too.
For me, a winner.

Here the full story.

It's available the new Yaqi Single Edge head.
This is the slim version, with Cobbled geometry, of the half DE blade razor.
So I call it SCHaDE, of which I like the gunmetal.

The SCHaDE head is a pleasure.
Very light, 22g.
Ultra compact, only 8mm high.

Very slim and easy to handle, in any situation.
It is not a pussy.
It beats, and is not to be underestimated.
But It does it with grace and fairplay.

Simple and intuitive to control.
With the right technique ...

Looks interesting. I haven't tried a half blade razor yet but now the "space chrome" is heading my way. I've got to get rid of all those unmentionable blades somehow.

Thanks, Jim.

The light handle is nice.
But this geometry is a bit too aggressive for my taste.
Today I've switched on something a little more consistent.

I find more comfortable, with less power on the head.
And I love the color combination ...
